FC Dallas has signed OKC Energy FC goalkeeper Jacob Lissek to a four-day USL Short Term Agreement due to extreme hardship and he will serve as backup keeper in Saturday's 18-man roster.
According to Carter Baum at FC Dallas, Chris Seitz suffered a hamstring injury in training earlier this week and is being re-evaluated by the medical staff. He will not be available for selection tomorrow night when the club hosts Sporting Kansas City.
Lissek joined the club in Frisco for training on Wednesday and signed a short-term deal on Thursday. The 24-year old has been with FCD’s USL affiliate for two seasons now following a year in Charlotte.
For those curious about the USL Short Term Agreement policies in MLS, here is what the league’s rules have to say about it:
Each season, each MLS club is allowed a maximum of four USL Short Term Agreement contracts per season for CONCACAF Champions League, U.S. Open Cup, and exhibition matches. Players can be signed for MLS regular season games only in cases of Extreme Hardships when a club has fewer than four available outfield substitutes (less than 14 outfield players available) or has fewer than two goalkeepers available.
